serpent scarf

I wanted to make something small I could wear to Annabel’s Halloween events at school. That way I could be in the spirit, but not be distracting. This scarf will work well…although, with the way things are going, I’ll never be able to wear it – it’s going to be 95 degrees here on Friday!

Cut your fabric to your desired size – mine was about 46-inches long and 26-inches wide.

Lay your fabric out, fuzzy side up. Place your snakes so the heads are on the fabric and the tails stick over the edge. You can do this all over the scarf, or just at the ends – totally up to you!

Once you’ve placed your snakes, fold the fabric over it, so the fuzzy side is on the inside and the snake heads are covered. Then pin everything in place.

Make sure you pin the length, too!

Get to sewing! Don’t forget to leave a small opening in the scarf (about an inch or two). You’ll close it after you pull your fabric through.

When you sew over the snakes, go slowly and make sure you have a heavy-duty needle (I used a denim needle). You can also hand-sew, but you will definitely want a thimble to help push the needle through the snake!

After you’ve finished sewing, snip the tails.

Carefully pull the material through the opening in the scarf.

Sew the opening closed.

Ssssssssnakes!

I like how they just hang there like, “Oh, this scarf is so soft and OMG SNAKES.”

Annabel is saying, “Spooooky,” in this picture. NOT duck face! If you make a scarf for a kid, definitely make it a shorter length – no longer than 36-inches.

Any questions, let me know. Have fun!
